I just did a test recording with the FM radio this morning. I'm not sure
if it's the bitrate that's currently selected or what, but an MP3 file
was generated that sounds like WAV, or MP3 at 22KHZ instead of 44.1
which is what the screen is set to. I had no problems doing that, but
with the same daily build, and Steve's current public Reed voice
recording on the mic, the thing would generate files but then have no
data in them.
Also, there seem to be additional controls in the screen sometimes. I
tried recording with the mic, and I could only have low or high
sensitivity and the unit volume in the recording screen. With the FM
radio, there appear to be two sliders to fade the signal, a slider for
gain as well as the volume control. Can you comment on this?
I'll try those voices you mentioned and see if my mic issues are fixed.
